Join the war to conquer Illuria in this classic war lords fantasy strategy game. Choose any combination of up to eight humans and AI players to be battled for control on the map.
The mission is simple – you should eliminate the other sides by capturing their cities. But victory is never easy - it can only be achieved by building massive armies, training and equipping mighty heroes, befriending legendary allies, and exploring the deep dark secrets hidden within Illuria's ruins.
So make your choice! Will you lead the Sirian Knights, the Gray Dwarves, the Storm Giants, the Orcs of Kor, the Elves of Elvallie, the Horse Lords, the mysterious Selentine Empire or the evil Lord Bane? Whomever you choose, fortune and glory await you!
Detailed User Manual is included. We strongly recommend you to read it through carefully to refresh your memories and know about a few differences between this version and original game.
Q: How do I save or load the game?
A: Warlords Classic saves the current game automatically on start and end of turn, before and after the battle, on ruin search etc… So, you cannot use “save-load magic”. This is what we call “fair play”.
Q: Only “hot seat” play? Is multiplayer coming?
A: Yes. We are going to implement the multiplayer mode via Game Center in next updates. Now you can train your command skills against 3 levels of AI.
Q: Where are "Fog of War" and “Hero Quests” features?
A: Since Warlords Classic is a Warlords 1 port and these features were introduced in Warlords II, they are not implemented in our version. We are not yet sure if we will ever implement them. Sorry.
Q: Any other differences from the game I love for tenth of years?
A: Yes, only a few. We have replaced libraries with tombs; you will always find money in tombs, and your hero will never die searching tombs. No diplomacy available, but we will implement it. Sirians faction has +1 bonus on plain, roads and bridges, because we all agree, Sirians definitely need some support.
What's New in Version 5.5
- Hand of Fate map tweaks & Fog of War in multiplayer mode.
This game is definitely worth the 5 bucks to play, especially if you have friends that will get it with you as well. It's like a fantasy version of risk. Every match is unique due to the amount of variation the game presents. You can play against AI, other people, or both. The AI matches alone would still make this an enjoyable game, but being able to play against other players is what really sold me on this. There's a lot of strategy involved but the game is simple enough for anyone to pickup after 30 or so minutes of playing. The downsides of the game are that each match is a commitment taking on average about 5 hours of your time to complete, this isn't a huge issue as you can sit the game down and pick it back up where you left off at your leisure, and the matchmaking could greatly be improved. If you don't have anyone to invite to a PVP game then you're forced to match up with a random person. You can't just search for a match though, you click the type of game you want to play and you hit start. If there is a match already created then you join that one but if there's not then you do your turn 1 and basically just have to hope someone eventually gets matched into your game. Overall, fun yet tactically challenging with definite room for improvement when it comes to the matchmaking system. I do recommend you get this game.
I continue to love this game.
I played this game in the early 90's and I have had the app for a couple of years. It is still my go to game. It is the benchmark that I compare other strategy game against. Though, there are a couple of things the original had that it now lacks - the diplomacy section - which I am not sure is all that important. But the activity log would be most helpful, since I don't always watch the other factions on their turn. Altogether, it is definitely worth buying and worth 5 stars.
As a long time Warlords player I can say this game is near perfect to the original.
The only issue would be to have the option to turn off auto grouping. If you have one small group finish their move at a group that has not yet moved then the second group will not auto move to finish their movement that turn. You will need to select and the group and deselect the group that merged. Apart from that it is a flawless. Great work!!
